5:31 pm
>> pelley: two weeks now until election day, but the fact is november 8 is the last day to vote. early voting is already under way in 32 states. for hillary clinton and donald trump, there is not a second to spare. major garrett is covering trump, but we'll begin tonight with clinton and our nancy cordes. >> hello, broward county! >> reporter: the clinton juggernaut doesn't leave much to chance. see if you can spot today's message in coconut creek, florida. >> in fact, you can goes croo the street right now to the north regional library and cast your ballot today. >> reporter: clinton is spending the next four days in florida, north korea, and iowa, the battleground states with the biggest early voting programs. more than half of all ballots in those three states will be cast well before november 8. then next week she'll focus on
5:32 pm
most voting happens on election day. everywhere she goes, she is stalked by wikileaks, a batch of hacked e-mails released today included one that seemed to contradict what the president told cbs' bill plante in march of 2015. >> when did you first learn that hillary clinton used an e-mail system outside the u.s. government for official business while she was secretary of state? >> the same time everybody else learned it through news reports. >> reporter: within minutes of the interview, chief of staff, michelle miller told campaign aides, "we snead to clean this up. he has e-mails from her. they do not say >> he's caught up now, folks. >> reporter: in orlando, trump said the president should be investigated. >> this guy, he's as bad as she is, and he's got to stop campaigning and bring us some jobs, okay! >> reporter: the president has no plans to stop campaigning. in fact, one of his aides said
5:33 pm
clinton is attending her final fund-raiser of the campaign tonight, scott, so that she can focus solely on campaigning as well. >> pelley: but, nancy, the polls are narrowing in some unlikely places like texas and arizona, for example. is clinton going to make a play for these republican states? >> reporter: she might spend some money there, but her aides say as of right now, there are no plans to send clinton herself to those states. as enticing as a state like arizona is with its 11 elec believe that her time is better spent in big battlegrounds, scott, like florida and ohio, and that she'd need to feel much more confident before she started venturing into republican territory. >> pelley: nancy cordes, thanks. now we go to major. major we learned trump is right about one thing. there are going to be big obamacare rate increases, the benchmark going up 25% next year. what did he make of that today? >> reporter: well, scott, donald trump has had some
5:34 pm
advisers insist he has found an issue he's going to stick with for the duration-- health care. it rallies republicans and puts hillary clinton on the defensive. donald trump greeted supporters in sanford, florida, with characteristic gusto, and looked for a political lifeline in the ongoing woes of obamacare. >> the rates are going through the sky. we all knew that. i knew it before it was passed. >> reporter: the obama administration said yesterday insurance premiums on the health care exchanges will rise by an average of 25% this year. increases will be much higher. the administration did say federal subsidies will go up to soften the blow. trump warned democratic rival hillary clinton will make matters worse. >> she wants to put the government totally in charge of your health care, despite the fact it's no good. it will be much more expensive than even today. >> reporter: today in north carolina, former president bill clinton said his wife would fix the law. >> you keep what's good about
5:35 pm
problems. she's the only person you can vote for who wants to do that. >> reporter: but clinton has also criticized the affordable care act, giving trump and other republicans fodder for attacks. >> then the people are out there busting it, sometimes 60 hours a week, wind up with their premiums doubled and their coverage cut in half. it's the craziest thing in the world. >> reporter: but trump today bungled his health care message at an event with employees of his doral golf club. >> all of my employees are having a tremendous problem obamacare. >> reporter: the general manager of the course said most trump employees have company-provided health coverage and not obamacare. the doral event also showcased a trump property. much the same will happen in the nation's capital today, when trump officially opens his newest hotel. trump's recent infatuation with marketing have some concerned he is not that interested in the closing days of this campaign, at least not politically.
5:36 pm
for clinton. major garrett, nancy cordes, thanks. democrats need a gain of five seats to take the senate or just four if they win the white house, because a vice president kaine would break any 50-50 tie. one republican seat democrats have their eye on is in pennsylvania, and julianna goldman is there. >> i definitely need your help. we've got two weeks to go. >> reporter: stumping in lancaster, pennsylvania, today, republican senator pat toomey argued he's needed in the senate to president hillary clinton. >> i think pennsylvanians want an independent senator who is going to evaluate policy independently, and as it pertains to pennsylvania and not just be a blank check for hillary clinton. >> reporter: polls here show clinton with a strong lead over donald trump, but toomey is locked in a tight race against democrat katie mcginty. >> i do stand with secretary clinton because she's focused on standing up for families. >> reporter: she has seized on
5:37 pm
he will vote for the g.o.p. nominee. >> i think pat toomey owes it to voters to answer the simple question whether he's voting for donald trump or not. >> i find it's a genuine dilemma. hillary clinton's completely unacceptable to me but i recognize my party's nominated a candidate who has serious flaws. >> reporter: toomey can't win without his party's base and points to what he'd expect from a republican president trump. >> he'd probably sign a repeal of obamacare. he'd probably restore sanctions on iran. he's probably sign a tax reform. t we could do. >> reporter: but the senator also needs to convince some clinton voters to split the ticket, especially women in areas like the philadelphia suburbs. a recent bloomberg poll showed 76% were bothered a lot by trump's crude comments on the "access hollywood." both sides say the road to the senate majority runs through pennsylvania, and the dollars
5:38 pm
so far, it's already become the most expensive senate race ever. >> pelley: julianna goldman on the senate tonight. julianna, thanks. well, there is another race to election day. it is a surge of migrants from central america. unaccompanied children at the u.s. border are up nearly 50%. manuel bojorquez found out why. >> reporter: every day, dozens of men, women, and children stream through the streets mccallen, texas, to this migrant center at sacred heart catholic church. they've just illegally crossed into the u.s. and have been released by border patrol with ankle monitors, while they file for asylum. brenda aguilar fled hon dors. "you're a single mother looking for work, and also to flee the
5:39 pm
>> we're getting mass spikes of people crossing and turning themselves in. >> reporter: agent kabali is with the local border patrol union. he said saiz on some days they've encountered thousands of immigrant on this stretch of the border. what's driving them? >> the smugglers are telling them if hillary gets elected there will be some type of amnesty so they need to get here by a certain date. they're also told if trump gets elected there will be some magical wall that pops u goes up, nobody will get in again. >> reporter: something edward cerritos of el salvador feels. this is your last option, you feel. "yes," he says, "because if trump wins we won't be able to come in and scr for asylum." at the church, it's time for this group to head to the bus depot. the routes scrip belled on the envelope show they're continuing the journey north.
5:40 pm
simply drop after election day. scott, experts say that as long as violence and poverty pursift on the other side of the rio grande, smugglers will just find another reason to convince people it's time to cross. >> pelley: manuel bojorquez on the texas border. manuel, thank you. well, donald trump is warning about the possibility of voter fraud and one city that he's pointed to is philadelphia. so we asked jeff pegues to look into it that. >> reporter: warehouse almost 4,000 electronic voting machines are ready to be rolled out. but some cyber-security experts warn the machines, which are used in most pennsylvania counties, are vulnerable. >> i'd say relatively lucrative target if you were going to try to manipulate something. >> reporter: ben johnson, a former n.s.a. engineer, is with cyber-security group carbonblack. he says these direct recording electronic machines don't have paper backups of each ballot
5:41 pm
tight race difficult. >> it's really around creating doubt, doubt in democracy, doubt in the integrity of the election process. >> i just hear such reports about philadelphia. >> reporter: donald trump has singled out philadelphia as being a hot bed for voter fraud. >> we have to make sure the people of philadelphia are protected, that the vote counts are 100%. >> reporter: so you have confidence in the voting machines here. >> yes. >> reporter: but republican elections commissioner al schmidt disagrees. he wrote a report on irregularities during the 2012 election. there have been dozens of cases, but only 10 prosecutions. >> voter fraud does occur, but that's a completely different animal from vote rigging, right, or rampant voter fraud, which would involve hundreds of people stealing thousands of votes to change the outcome of a presidential election. >> reporter: schmidt says even without a paper trail, the electronic machines are safe
5:42 pm
record of votes cast. and, he points out, the individual machines are not connected to the internet. >> our voting system has more in common with a household appliance than it does with a laptop or anything like that. >> reporter: and that means they don't believe the voting machines themselves are vulnerable to a cyberattack, but, scott, with other aspects of the system online, pennsylvania is one of about 40 states getting help from the department of homeland security. >> pelley: jeff pegues, our homeland security correspondent, thanks very much. the u.s. and its allies plan to force isis out of its capital city, raqqa, syria, shortly after the city of mosul, iraq, is won. that, according to u.s. defense secretary ash carter today. the liberation of mosul by iraqi and kurdish troops backed by american air power and special
5:43 pm
holly williams is with refugees who are spilling on to the battle field. >> reporter: the refugees are a fraction of those still trapped under isis inside mosul. but there are fears already that isis fighters could use the exodus to escape or launch terror attacks. at this camp, housing some refugees from mosul, they separate the men on arrival to interrogate these men told us they welcome it because they fled here to be safe. but ahmed, who came from hawija in the south, is accused of being an isis fighter. he admits that his father and two brothers joined the extremists, but is adamant that he did not. why did you flee now? why not before? "we heard there was an amnesty for people, even they had family
5:44 pm
"so i came to find out." he can only join the other refugees if he can prove he's innocent. awakened to the mosul offensive, isis is out-gunned and out-manned, but fighting back with its trademark guerilla tactics, suicide attacks and car bombs, digging networks of tunnels, and launching surprise town 200 miles west of baghdad. planting the fighters among desperate refuge refugees to wre violence is a tactic isis will find hard to resist. thins is offensive began, the united nations has received unconfirmed reports of massacres in mosul, scott, including the killing of 50 police officers and the murder of 70 civilians
5:45 pm
>> pelley: holly williams on the battlefield for us tonight. holly, thank you. well, the u.s. is going to have to accept north korea as a nuclear power. that is what is the director of national intelligence james clapper told charlie rose today at the council on foreign relations. >> that is their ticket to survival, and i got a good taste of that when i was there about how the world looks from their vantage, and they are siege, and they are very paranoid. >> pelley: clapper told charlie that the u.s. has to assume the north koreans could launch a nuclear missile that could reach alaska or hawaii. coming up next on the cbs evening news, glaring problems with headlights. put some distance between you and temptation with meta appetite control. clinically proven to help reduce hunger between meals.
